The tomato genome sequence provides insights into fleshy fruit evolution
TLDR
A high-quality genome sequence of domesticated tomato is presented, a draft sequence of its closest wild relative, Solanum pimpinellifolium, is compared, and the two tomato genomes are compared to each other and to the potato genome. Expand
A draft genome sequence of Nicotiana benthamiana to enhance molecular plant-microbe biology research.
TLDR
The generation of a 63-fold coverage draft genome sequence of N. benthamiana is reported and it will be useful for comparative genomics in the Solanaceae family as shown here by the discovery of microsynteny between N.benthamiana and tomato in the region encompassing the Pto and Prf genes. Expand
The draft genome of watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) and resequencing of 20 diverse accessions
TLDR
A high-quality draft genome sequence of the east Asia watermelon cultivar 97103 containing 23,440 predicted protein-coding genes is reported, which yielded important insights into aspects of phloem-based vascular signaling in common between watermelon and cucumber and identified genes crucial to valuable fruit-quality traits. Expand
The Sol Genomics Network (SGN)—from genotype to phenotype to breeding
TLDR
The Sol Genomics Network is a web portal with genomic and phenotypic data, and analysis tools for the Solanaceae family and close relatives, and a new tool was recently implemented to improve Virus-Induced Gene Silencing (VIGS) constructs called the SGN VIGS tool. Expand
The Sol Genomics Network (solgenomics.net): growing tomatoes using Perl
TLDR
A new transcriptome component has been added to store RNA-seq and microarray data and the database architecture combines SGN-specific schemas and the community-developed Chado schema for compatibility with other genome databases. Expand
A reference genome for Nicotiana tabacum enables map-based cloning of homeologous loci implicated in nitrogen utilization efficiency
TLDR
An improved tobacco genome assembly is reported, which, aided by the application of optical mapping, achieves an N50 size and enables anchoring of 64% of the genome to pseudomolecules; a significant increase from the previous value of 19%. Expand
Genome sequence of mungbean and insights into evolution within Vigna species
TLDR
A draft genome sequence of mungbean is constructed to facilitate genome research into the subgenus Ceratotropis, which includes several important dietary legumes in Asia, and to enable a better understanding of the evolution of leguminous species. Expand
The Genome Database for Rosaceae (GDR): year 10 update
TLDR
The Genome Database for Rosaceae (GDR) has been enhanced with new genomic, genetic and breeding data, and improved functionality, to enable selection comparison and assistance with breeding decision making. Expand
Insight into the evolution of the Solanaceae from the parental genomes of Petunia hybrida
TLDR
The whole-genome sequencing and assembly of inbred derivatives of Petunia hybrida reveal that the Petunia lineage has experienced at least two rounds of hexaploidization, and transcription factors involved in the shift from bee to moth pollination reside in particularly dynamic regions of the genome. Expand
Transcriptomics-based screen for genes induced by flagellin and repressed by pathogen effectors identifies a cell wall-associated kinase involved in plant immunity
TLDR
A high-throughput screen is described, using RNA sequencing and virus-induced gene silencing, to identify tomato genes whose expression is enhanced by the flagellin microbe-associated molecular pattern flgII-28, but reduced by activities of the Pseudomonas syringae pv. Expand
